Day 24 ~ X ~ FAITH OF THE CANAANITE WOMAN
Rom. 11:13-15, 29-32
Today is the twenty fourth day of the Lent season. In today's scripture a woman from Canaan went to Jesus begging that He help her daughter who was demon possessed. Jesus told her that God sent Him to tell the Gospel to the Jews first. The woman replied that even the dogs eat the crumbs from the Master's table. Instead of justifying her right to have her daughter healed, she became a worshipper and hoped for grace and mercy for her daughter to be healed. Then Jesus said she had great faith and her daughter was healed. CLICK HERE for Rev Amanda May's inspirational writing of the Canaanite Woman.
This story is also found in the Gospel of Mark 7: 24-30

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm. A song. 1 "May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us
2 so that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations. 3 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.
5 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you. 6 The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.
7 May God bless us still,
so that all the ends of the earth will fear him. "
Romans 11:13-15 and Romans 11:29-32
13 " I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead"?
29 "for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now[a] receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

The Faith of a Canaanite Woman 21 "Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly. 23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.” 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” 25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said. 26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” 27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” 28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment."
